Dragon Quest 12 Developer Orca

Dragon Quest XII: The Flames of Fate is starting to sound like quite the undertaking, as another Japanese studio has revealed that it's working on the game alongside Square Enix. Orca is a developer that also helped out with Dragon Quest XI and Dragon Quest XI S, and it's currently hiring all kinds of artists for Dragon Quest XII.

If you missed the news, it was announced last week that fellow Japanese studio HexaDrive is collaborating on the next Dragon Quest as well. Square Enix is really stocking up for this one, isn't it?

Again, though, it's becoming abundantly clear that Dragon Quest XII isn't going to release anytime soon. It's obviously a long, long way off, but given the series' quality over the years, we're happy to wait — although if we're still writing about developers hiring for the project in 2023, we might regret those words.
